How DUI works in different states?
My husband went out Last Thursday night and got an DUI for having a loud car and license plate light being off. He got arrested with BAC 0.10, he got 1st misdemeanor DUI (No.VA) even though he has another DUI in different state (MD) 8 yrs ago. He's job requires him to drive to job sites each day, with a company vehicle.. He just started his new job couple weeks ago, not sure if he needs to tell them right away or not. he's license is suspended for 7 days, but after the court date (next Monday) will he be in jail? I've told him to take alcohol programs before the court date.. so it'd look better on him.. Would the judge find out this is his second DUI? is he allow to drive in MD? Does he need a lawyer? He just wants to drive back and forth from work to home only.. to make that happen.. i'd assume he needs.. a lawyer?
A first time DWI with a .10 BAC is unlikely to receive jail time and would likely be able to continue to drive for work...
DUI ?
The city of Newport News Va , I ended up getting a not to bright lawer he didn't know if the prosecutor could not provide full Discovery he can ask for a dismissal but my problem is they didn't give me the whole video of my Sobriety test and doesn't Newport News have a local law that you have to get to your discovery and evidence 15 days before the court date ?
You get the attorney you pay for. If discovery is late that is grounds to continue. No judge would deny more time to...
I received a DUI in Toano but I was not breathalyzed, what do I do now?
I was pulled over and given a field sobriety test, but I was not administered a breathalyzer test. I feel that I should have passed the test. I was then arrested for a DUI. This is my first DUI and I'm scared for the outcome. I don't want this to stay on my record. Is it possible to get a DUI removed from your record? What should I do next?
You can either win your case at trial or have the dui amended to another charge. Either way, you will need to hire a...
DUI - Was this probable cause?
My husband was pulled over for going 37 in a 55. The speed limit had just changed - half a mile. He had been in his car with the license and registration for a good minute when the lights started bothering my husband, he opened his door and asked if the officer could possibly turn off his lights. He then looked at his eyes and gave him a breathalyzer, which he blew a 0.18. This is the first time my husband has ever been in any trouble. The officer never read him his rights, which I understand isn't always necessary. But he also never told him he had the right to an attorney, or anything. My question is this - was this indeed probable cause to pull us over? I felt that half a mile after the speed limit increase isn't much time to accelerate, and he was going 37, which obviously means that he was accelerating. The officer may have even turned his lights on before the speed limit change. Also, does the fact that my husband has severe acid reflux (which can cause a higher bac) help us any?
The officer does not need probable cause, merely reasonable suspicion. Driving slowly can be grounds for a traffic...
DUI - is there any chance of a charge reduction?
My husband has a clean record. We were pulled over for driving 37 in 55, just after the speed limit change. The officer may have even turned on his lights before the change. After taking the lincense and registration, he stayed at his car for a good while. My husband began to feel very ill and opened his door to ask if the officer could possibly turn off his lights. He then looked at his eyes before giving him a breathalyzer, he blew a 0.18. It is very crucial to his career that he is not convicted. We are willing to pay for the best lawyer. I has a few questions. My husband has severe acid reflux, which can alter breathalyzer test, and he also had a fever. He was not acting drunk - not staggering, slurring, or anything. The only field test performed was the officer looking into his eyes. Is there any chance of getting the accuracy of the BAC test challenged? There was no blood test performed. Was pulling us over that soon after the speed limit change even probable cause? We are making appointments this week, we just need some peace of mind that it is not entirely hopeless. Thank you
